About This Show
Inspired by many well-known storytelling events and podcasts held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional.
Recorded live at BATS Theatre (Wellington) and Basement Theatre (Auckland).
